Note* See Arthur W. Grimshaw remembered for a biography of his life, the story of his ancestors, and the story of his children.”

Paul West:”A considerable amount of information was obtained from a manuscript written by Mr. Arthur Grimshaw’s second wife, Naomi Cavender . She was much younger than Arthur. Shortly after their marriage they visited Scoiota [sic] County, Ohio and received much family information from talking to the older people in the area. They also vi si ted the Sciota County Courthouse and searched through the old records. Mrs. Grimshaw mailed a copy of her findings to my mother, Marie. When mother died, Iinherited this manuscript which I how have in my historical library.”, Principal=Naomi Cavender2,1

Birth*28 March 1873 1 
Religion*circa
1890 
Uncle Arthur was converted when just a boy seventeen years of age. He walked with God and served him faithfully for over 70 years. He identified himself with the Valley Chapel Church of God (Independent Holiness Peop!e) of which his father, M.J. Grimshaw, Selah P. Thayer, and uncle Lafe Epperson were’ the original trustees. The old church building was constructed in 1886. Destroyed by fire in 1914.3 
Marriage*4 April 1897 Macon Co., MO, Principal=Ella Jane Dunseith1 
Note*circa 1913 Thayer: “As he neared the age of 40 years, Uncle Arthur received a definite call to preach the Gospel, which he faithfully did wherever he was needed. He conducted many funerals for neighbors and friends, and spoke words of comfort to the sorrowing. Few communities have ever been blessed with a man like A.W. Grimshaw. I have heard him preach many times at his regular monthly appointments at the Rock Creek school house. His words and his handshake were to me, and to everyone present, a great encouragement.”3 
Marriage*8 February 1939 Thayer: “After Aunt Ella’s death, Uncle Arthur married Naomi Cavender February 8, 1939. For more than 20.years they lived a happy life as they labored together at the farm home, and in church work as duty called.”, Principal=Naomi Cavender1,3 
Death*27 February 1961 At farmhouse where lived for 81 years., Macon Co., MO1,3
